Outside Sales Reps - What is your (precovid) weekly schedule?

I'd like to really try and see other best practices, my day is usually pretty solid.


I only reply to emails twice a day. As if it's ultra important they would reach out via other means.


Any other things you people do?

I try to keep scheduled meetings to Tuesday and Thursday where I can. Thisย leaves me a heap of time to generate fresh pipe through the week and to get on top of follow up and next steps for my deals. It also affords a heap of prep time for calls and meetings. Also, gives me space in the diary for ad hoc meetings that fall in the diary.ย

Glad I could help ๐Ÿ˜Š one other thing..
I colour code my diary by value not by activity type.

e.g if a task is green itโ€™s high value and directly impacts my role. If itโ€™s yellow it is somewhat valuable to my role and in some circumstances Iโ€™d be happy to reschedule it to make way for a green activity. If itโ€™s a red activity itโ€™s low value and doesnโ€™t impact my role and these things I try to minimise or cancel where I can.ย

I tried to be on the road 2-3 days a week and then at the office/home the rest of the time.ย

Yeah I'm usually gone for 5-7 days due to industry. 10 days away isn't out of the norm. Then 3-4 office days follow.ย

Very much so. I get OT for travelling not on work hours.ย 

OT for client meetings/dinners/events where I rep the company etc.ย 

Lead a team, and juggle plates.ย

Oh that's pretty cool !ย 
Personally, I don't think I could do it though.ย
